Offering classic Art Deco appeal, this family-owned beachfront hotel is at the north end of South Beach, just 3 blocks from the Lincoln Road Mall and the Miami Beach Convention Center. Jungle Island, the Miami Children's Museum, and the Port of Miami are all about 3 miles away.
Opened in 1941, Richmond Oceanfront Hotel features an outdoor pool surrounded by a patio with lounge chairs, tables, and a spa tub in the shape of a half-moon. A winding path leads past a fountain to a key-coded gate, a small wooden boardwalk, and the beach, which provides sun loungers, beach umbrellas, and towels. The hotel's café offers breakfast from morning until mid-afternoon, and in the evenings, guests can sit on the front porch—shaded by tall palm trees wrapped in tiny white lights—to enjoy a drink. Wireless Internet access (surcharge) is available throughout the hotel.
This Miami Beach hotel offers 92 guestrooms, decorated in a low-key Deco style. Beds are dressed with down duvets and all-white bedding. Closets contain red umbrellas, in-room safes, and bathrobes. Rooms also feature cable TV, compact refrigerators, and 1930s-style clock radios. Small bathrooms have original tiling. Silver rolling trays hold beach towels and hair dryers. Designer toiletries and makeup/shaving mirrors are also provided.
